Update on Syria - Israel launched a missile strike on Syria this week, possibly escalating what has been a relatively "cold" war between the two nations for the past few years. We speak with Keith Watenpaugh, Professor of Modern Islam and Director of the Human Rights Initiative at UC Davis.
PPIC Report - What's your opinion of the job Governor Jerry Brown is doing in California? How about the state's lawmakers? Today on Insight, we'll discuss the results of a new statewide survey from the Public Policy Institute of California with President and CEO Mark Baldassare.
Baghdad Yoga - Lt. Col. Michele Spencer is both an active-duty servicemember, but also a yoga instructor. While deployed to Baghdad, Iraq, her yoga studio was in the former backyard of one of Saddam Hussein's sons, Uday Hussein. She's recently released a book about her experience, "B.A.G.H.D.A.D. Yoga," which she'll be signing copies of this weekend in Sacramento. We'll talk with Lt. Col. Spencer about her experience.
Comedian Vijay Nathan - Vijai Nathan gets a good amount of laughs from jokes about growing up as an Indian-American in the suburbs of Washington D.C. Cultural clashes with her parents, racism, and dating are all fodder for making people laugh but these experiences are also typical and may times difficult for an Indian-American woman in America, as Vijai will explain. She joins us ahead of her performance at Three Stages in Folsom Saturday, February 2.
Sound Advice - Wiggins Family Edition In this week's Sound Advice, Capital Public Radio's Afternoon Classical Host Cale Wiggins joins us with an insider's tale of "the Bakersfield Sound," which featured the country songs of Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and his mother Susan Raye
